Simply + Fiercely

Like many people, I have a lot on my plate. Between work, home and family, my life has the potential to bury me. There’s always something to do, something else to worry about—am I right?

I’m not promising perfection, of course, but I’ve spent the last decade simplifying. Slowly but surely, small changes to my daily routines and habits have made a big difference in my quality of life.

Everyone is different and there is no one right way to simplify mealtime. However, if feeding your family is a source of stress, then investing time and energy to find a system that works for YOU is essential.

Go to bed earlier at least once a week

When everything has a place, you don’t have to waste valuable time or energy figuring out what to do next. And this applies to everything, not just physical stuff.

Find a home for everything
